IJART addresses arts and new technologies, highlighting computational art. With evolution of intelligent devices, sensors and ambient intelligent/ubiquitous systems, projects are exploring the design of intelligent artistic artefacts. Ambient intelligence supports the vision that technology becomes invisible, embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever needed, attuned to all senses, adaptive to users/context and autonomously acting, bringing art to ordinary people, offering artists creative tools to extend the grammar of the traditional arts. Information environments will be the major drivers of culture.


 Topics covered include

  • New media arts, science and technology
  • Interactive/visual theatre, neurobiological base of acting, digital/wearable cinema
  • Augmented performance in dance
  • Artificial intelligence-based art practice, web art and postmodernism
  • Using analysis of artworks in conjunction with AmI to produce novel objects
  • Using AmI to promote the creativity of a human user
  • Autonomic sensor networks and wearable computers in the performing arts
  • Computer vision and optical tracking for music and dance performance
  • Cognitive intelligence and natural intelligence for the arts
  • Collaborative distributed environments
  • Evolutionary art systems that create drawings/images/animations/sculptures/poetry/text
  • Evolutionary music systems that create musical pieces/sounds/instruments/voices
  • Choreographing media for interactive virtual environments
  • New media actors, new media aesthetics
  • Social and ethical issues in the arts and technology

      • Get down with the digital


        To industrial designer Gustavo Ostos Rios, music improvisation is all about the emotion but he and his two supervisors in the Department of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands have now found a way to understand the complex interactions that take place between instrumentalists and singers during a jam with the aim of using those insights to add greater emotional expression to a performance involving digital instruments [...]

      • The trancing brain


        New research suggests that art, music, and dance, which we perceive as unique to human beings are a natural adaptation wrought on the human brain by evolution that provides a sub-conscious way for the old brain, the paleoencephalon to coordinate the conflicting signals from the new brain, the neocortex. Art may well be as hard-wired an impulse as the drive to eat and drink and our sex drives, according to research published in the International Journal of Arts and Technology [...]
